Local Airlines Extend Flight Suspensions Again Due to Modified ECQ

Local airlines are once again extending their flight suspensions until the end of the month due to the declaration of the modified enhanced community quarantine over Metro Manila and other “high-risk” parts of the country.

These airlines, namely Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, SkyJet, and AirAsia, all issued their own statements confirming the cancellation of both domestic and international flights until May 31, 2020.

Affected passengers of Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, and SkyJet may opt to avail of a full refund, put the full cost of their ticket into a Travel Fund, or rebook their flights.

Affected passengers of AirAsia, meanwhile, may rebook their flight for free until 31 October 2020 or credit it to their AirAsia BIG Member account.

Philippine Airlines added that it is currently planning to operate a few domestic routes from its Davao hub to Iloilo, Siargao, and General Santos “to help support the economic recovery of Mindanao with the easing of quarantine restrictions there.” It will make a new announcement once the details are finalized.
